OAOD (Lyx)

Application: Lyx

What is it:

LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX. It makes the power and
typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to
word processors. Since LyX supports LaTeX’s concept of general
mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create professional quality
documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also
possible to use LaTeX commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX’s
power is lost.

You can extend the functionality of LyX by installing these packages:

* chktex: check for typographical errors
* dvipost: display tracked changes in DVI format output
* gnuhtml2latex: import HTML documents
* groff: improved table formatting in plain text exports
* linuxdoc-tools: export SGML LinuxDoc documents
* noweb: import noweb files
* rcs: integrated version control
* sgmltools-lite: export SGML DocBook documents
* elyxer, tex4ht, hevea, tth, or latex2html: export HTML documents
* texlive-latex-extra: more styles and packages
* wv: import MS Word documents
